Event description

Description

Figure skating icon Randy Gardner discusses his personal and professional life in his one-man, autobiographical show "Go Figure! The Randy Gardner Story." In the play – co-written by Randy Gardner and Josh Ravetch and directed by Josh Ravetch – Gardner recounts both triumph and tragedy, from his upbringing to his decades-long career as an Olympic champion figure skater. He takes the audience on the path of his own shocking and surprising story on his way to winning the World Championships in pairs ice skating. He met his lifelong skating partner, Tai Babilonia, when they were children, and as she is one of his life companions, he discusses their skating careers as well as their personal lives. Together they won five U.S. Figure Skating Championships and one World Figure Skating Championship, went to the Olympics, performed in the Ice Capades and together endured her addiction issues and his living in the closet. For both the Friday and Saturday shows, Tai will be joining Randy onstage.

This event is sponsored by the City of West Hollywood. This will be a free dress preview performance. The full ticketed performance will take place on Saturday, January 6, and be a fundraiser for the National AIDS Monument which will be sited in West Hollywood.
